valentine’s day with dua lipa

Typically, on Valentine’s Day, girls get dressed up, and they are whisked away by whoever fancies them, but what’s the fun in that when you can go to one of the best concerts ever with one of your girlfriends. Want to know more? Well, keep reading! Very last minute, Violet and I decided to getContinue reading “valentine’s day with dua lipa”

cheers to what’s to come

To say the last few months have been a whirlwind is an understatement. Over the last six months, I’ve had more success than I’ve had in my twenty-four years of life. I closed on my first real estate transaction, closed on my first home, got out of the hospitality industry, and landed a job asContinue reading “cheers to what’s to come”

new music friday: Tigirlily

Throughout my years of living in Nashville, I have met some amazing artists. While attending Belmont, I had a class with Krista and that’s when I was introduced to Tigirlily. Tigirlily is a singer/songwriter duo made up of Krista and her sister, Kendra. Over the last year, it has been amazing seeing them blow upContinue reading “new music friday: Tigirlily”

music city series: Broadway

As a local, I generally try to avoid downtown, especially during the busy seasons, but Sunday was an exception. Since I started working downtown, my coworkers have continuously said, “Michelle, come out with us,” and I finally did it. Sunday, I got off work around 3 pm and headed to Broadway for an afternoon ofContinue reading “music city series: Broadway”

i’m back

Wow! It’s been a little while since I posted, but I’m back at it again. In my post starting off the year, I talked about taking more time for myself and posting more, but that isn’t how these past few months worked out. I’ve been working, trying to grow my confidence, and figuring out howContinue reading “i’m back”

what will 2021 bring?

Like many others, as I counted down, “10, 9, 8, 7,…” to 2020, I thought the new decade was going to bring new experiences and happiness. Unfortunately, that was not the case. I went through a tornado, a global pandemic, changing careers, facing many mental health issues, physical health issues, and financial struggles. I knowContinue reading “what will 2021 bring?”

music city series: Old Glory

Before Halloween, some of my girlfriends and I tried out Old Glory, which is a one-of-a-kind bar here in Nashville. Never did I expect to walk into a dungeon-like room and find music, drinks, and laughter. The history behind the space is unique. With a smokestack standing tall, Old Glory sits in the former boilerContinue reading “music city series: Old Glory”

music city series: Stateside Kitchen

Earlier this month, we celebrated my roommate for her 22nd birthday. Because of COVID-19 and the current restrictions set in Nashville, we decided to do a girl’s dinner at Stateside Kitchen in the Dream Hotel. After enjoying a few drinks and a meal, we stopped to take a few pictures at ”The Climax” neon lightContinue reading “music city series: Stateside Kitchen”

music city series: Burger Republic

About a month ago, my grandparents were able to take a trip from North Carolina to visit me here in Nashville. Whenever they come to town, we try to find the best food to eat. Last year when they visited, we ate at one of my favorite burger joints, Burger Republic, and this year weContinue reading “music city series: Burger Republic”

new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini

When Kelsea Ballerini released her self-titled album, Kelsea, in March, I didn’t listen to the whole album. With her latest release, Ballerini, I feel more compelled to listen to her stories. In my opinion, Kelsea was a overly produced, pop leaning album, while Ballerini shows all the same songs in a different, light-hearted way. IContinue reading “new music friday: Kelsea Ballerini”
